's going to have an impact on law enforcement. we're going to be looking at f.b.i. agents, d.e.a. agents, a.t.f. agents who are going to be furloughed and federal prosecutors who are not going to be working with you all on task forces and bringing cases. there are a whole variety of things that are going to happen as a result of sequestration. and that's why i called on in my prepared remarks for congress to resolve this as quickly as possible. >> america's day begins in guam and our questions will attendant with attorney general capadas. >> and we have been talking about your visit to the war museum there and still remember how long you stayed there and appreciated your visit. and spending some money, i think. >> not to have a commercial. but if you are in guam or in the south pacific, it is something to see this world war ii museum. it is something that is -- it's technologically done but extremely moving and informative place. it's really something to see. >> and kind after follow-on to maine's questions, the volcker grants, and i think how the department of justice allocates these cuts,
't. though we may not know in any particular case whether a person is an automoton, usually you can. the law has a bright line. it says if you engage in a wongful action, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, ho
of the problem, but because they did not have a good enforcement mechanism and because the laws on book wrs not enforced, we have a much greater problem today. e-verify is not the entire solution, but it is a critical part of the enforcement solution making it easier for employers to be abigail to know whether those presenting credentials to them for a job are indeed the person they say they are with the authorization they claim to have, and it does so electronically, which i think we'll see a demonstration of here today. let's get on with the opportunity to do that, and i'll put the rest of the statement in the record. thank you. >> i thank the chairman. i'll introduce you, have the demonstration, and recognize you for opening statements. i'll apologize for pronunciations that are a function of my inability to do things phonetically well. ms soraya correa. perfect it's not, but maybe close. associate director for the u.s. st'sship and immigration services, enterprise service director, and responsible for delivering immigration status and information in support of the uscis mission and over
. calm down, senator, mr. holder is right. even if he doesn't explain the law very well, the u.s. government cannot randomly target american citizens on u.s. soil or anywhere else. i repeat that. the u.s. government cannot randomly target american citizens on u.s. soil or anywhere else. what it can do, under the laws of war, is target an enemy combatant, at anywhere, at any time, including on u.s. soil. this includes a u.s. citizen who is also an enemy combatant. the president can designate such a combatant if he belongs to an entity, government, say, or a terrorist network like al qaeda. that has taken up arms against the united states as part of an internationally recognized armed conflict. that does not include hanoi jane. such a conflict exists between the u.s. and al qaeda. so, mr. holder is right. the u.s. could have targeted, say, u.s. citizen anwar awlaki had he continued to live in virginia. the u.s. killed him in yemen before he could kill more americans. but under the law, awlaki was no different than the nazis who came ashore in long island in world war ii and were
pretty good, man. what's next on the show? >> the commonwealth is preparing to repeal a 136-year-old law that makes it illegal for unmarried virginian couples to live together. >> jon: damn you, south. do not make me [bleep] on you. so you're saying virginia's not really for lovers? next you'll tell me michigan's not for bringing lemonade and condoms to someone who turns out to be nbc's... we'll apologize tomorrow. i guess we'll find out when virginia passed that law in tonight's episode of "19th century news." hello, everybody. my most he's teemed viewers, 'tis i your humble host. my guest tonight florence nightingale. she's written a new book on something called antiseptics and their role in fighting deadly infections on the irish. first the 1800s people. first, a brief word from our sponsor. when it's friday night and you don't have to be anywhere 'til tuesday. anyway, our top story tonight, virginia has banned living in sin. no longer shall unmarried men and women terrorize our good state with their privates behind closed doors relationship. in technology news there's a brand new lab

's a comment on twitter. when boeing and others by law tried to notify employees of potential layoffs size year, obama astin not to do it. -- obama asked them not to do it. this notion of the warren act, can you talk about that? guest: the furloughs and that the federal government will not begin until the end of this month. you have to send a letter and the president signs it -- signed it last week saying that furloughs are coming. you've got to give advance notice. and in terms of contractors, you got to give advance notice as well, at least as i am under cla. the speaker pro tempore: of rule 0. any record vote on the postponed question will be taken later. for what purpose does the gentleman from pennsylvania seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i move to suspend the rules and concur in the senate amendment to the bill, h.r. 307. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the title of the bill. the clerk: h.r. 307. an act to re-authorize certain programs under the public health service act and the federal food, drug and cosmetic act with respect to public health security and all has -- all-h

of the children and education. we've made sure that our law enforcement is taken care of, but we've also made those difficult choices early on that washington could really learn from in budgeting. i congratulate congressman messer for bringing this particular bill. it's a good government bill. i know the other side of the aisle is talking about the sequester, and i find it ironic that "the washington times" today has a headline that says, 400 more jobs were created in spite of the sequester. so i don't believe that the sky is falling here. this legislation requires the president to do some simple math and include with his budget, should he choose to submit one, an estimate of the cost of the deficit per taxpayer. taxpayers just simply deserve to know how much they owe for washington's out-of-control spending. after all, every dime that the federal government borrows is saddled on this generation and the next generation and generations to follow. right now the cost of washington's $16 trillion of national debt totals more than $147,000 per taxpayer. in fact, approximately every minute, mr. spe

jurisdiction to get preapproval be from the federal government to get changing for the federal laws before those laws could be put into effect. host: you said it with a brooder law and that section five is a brooder part of it. guest: everyone sees it a critical part of the law. it puts the burden of proof on the state pfs before 1965, the courts or congress striked down oppression laws like in alabama, and al would ignore those rulings or implement a new measure. so this was a deter represent mechanism and there is nothing like it that is aiken to section 5. host: how crucial to do you see it as the major framework? guest: it was in 1965. it was needed because of the discrimination in the south. times have changed greatly. today it is no longer needed. if discrimination occurs, it can be remedied through section 2. that is a nationwide permanent pro vision that bans discrimination in the voting context. section 5 was put in place because local and state governments were trying to evade court decrees because it is no longer needed because there are there hasn't been any evasion in decades.
, the court said, cannot control as to whether the law is constitutional, but does control as to whether the antiinjunction statute applies. and this reminded me of louis carroll. [laughter] when i use a word, when i use a word like humpty dumpty, it means just what i choose it to mean, neither more, nor less. now, the magic of this dueling, call it taxonomy, means that because it is a penalty the court could go forward to consider its legality. because, but because it is a tax and not a penalty, it is a lawful exercise of the taxing power, not an unlawful exerlz of the power to regulate commerce. and a related irony is that five justices concluded that congress did not have the power under the commerce clause to regulate doing nothing. that is to say not buying health insurance. but five justices -- only chief justice in both camps -- held that congress does have the power to impose a tax for doing the very same nothing. not buying health insurance. so the constitutional law professor, president, who insisted that obamacare was constitutional was right all along. but he was right becaus

nobody bought it or sold it. it is homemade, how is law enforcement in this country going to grapple with homemade high-powered weapons. what will they do when they print the 3-d fully automatic machine gun? the government agency that will have to deal with the challenges of this new technology when it happens is the atf. last month when president obama unveiled his proposed gun reforms at the white house, one thing he asked congress to do was confirm the nominee to run atf, a man named todd jones who has been acting as deputy director of the atf for five years. president obama asked congress to stop hindering law enforcement, and he called congress out for allowing anybody to be confirmed as director of the atf for six years now. this week we got news that even that part of what president obama confirmed on guns, even just asking the director of the law enforcement agency that is concerned with federal gun laws, yeah, republicans in congress may just oppose that too. they don't want anybody running that after six years. republicans increasingly make the case that we shoul
or down. up, man's old age dream, the ultimate and individual freedom consistent with law and order, or down to the ant heap of owe toa tal tehranism totalitarianism. those who would trade freedom for security have embarked on this downward course. given the top of this discussion, the asserted power of the president to take the life of a u.s. citizen on u.s. soil without due process of law, that last portion bears reading again. those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course to the ant heap of totalitarianism. in this vote harvesting time, they use terms like the great society, or as we were told a few days ago by the president, we must accept a greater government activity in the affairs of the people. but they've been a little more ex applies it in the past and among themselves. and of all of the things i now will quote have appeared in print. these are not republican accusations. for example, they have voices that say -- quote -- "the cold war will end through our acceptance of a not undemocratic socialism." another voice says "the profit mot
in the buildup to try to avoid these, you know, spending changes that he signed into law and there's a real question, given those numbers, chris, about whether people are starting to doubt him. they're starting to doubt whether they're getting the straight scoop. >> you got it. and the real fight is just beginning now, which is over the continuing resolution to fund the government. the current one expires on the 27th of march and that's the real bite that's coming. will the president have more or less credibility in that fight after his sequester scare stuff? i would say less. >> megyn: we'll watch it and see how the polling goes. chris, thank you. >> you bet. >> megyn: in addition to the new numberses fox news poll find that americans had it with high gas prices and with the washington spending. the prices at the pump topping the list of voter gripes, 84% say that they are fed up with high gas prices. 81%, that's actually number two, say the growing deficit is frustrating. while nearly as many are fed up with too much government spending and for that matter with gridlock in washington. the

as cia director. federal law-enforcement officials revealed yesterday they took into custody al qaeda operatives and osama bin laden's son-in-law suleyman obligates. and the white house has undertaken a new charm offensive aimed at winning over rank-and- file congressional republicans for a potential grand economic bargain. that's where we begin with you this morning. your thoughts on the new effort of engagement by president obama and hear how optimistic you are that a deficit deal can be reached. give us a call -- 202-585-3883, if you are outside the united states. you can catch up with us on twitter, facebook, or e-mail us. a very good friday morning to you. i want to take you to some of the headlines about what is being called a charm offensive by president obama. this from the wall street journal this morning -- and from the washington post -- and from the new york times -- there you have a picture from wednesday night at the jefferson hotel in washington, d.c., where senators including tom coburn and saxby chambliss and joined the president for dinner that the president paid for
law professor and government contracts law expert who was on the wartime contract commission on iraq and afghanistan wrote a memo describing all the ways in which the federal government can legally cut spending. and service contracts. it's very important especially in the context of the department of defense. in the last 10 years, spending on service contracts in the department of defense have more than doubled. from 72 billion per year to over to a hundred billion per year, just in the last 10 years. during that same time, in-house personnel costs have been effectively flat. he estimates that government- wide, 70%, to 90% of all sequestration spending cuts could easily come from service contracts. not exercising options, terminating for convenience, negotiating with the contractors not to continue with every option in their contracts. so it's not true that once a contract -- once money has been obligated to a contract that it is required to be spent. it's only when the work has already been done. host: i assume that the argument you are making to the administration. he would like to
. it will not be happening for at least 30 days because that is a period of time by law that federal employees need to be notified that their subject to furlough. that is casting little bit of a different feel about this. host: here is the baltimore sun -- the social security administration said it might shoulder across-the-board spending cuts without spending habits -- sending any of its full-time employees home. guest: that is a good example of how agencies will determine on a one by one basis of how they will deal with this. you heard the defense department saying that it was a lot that as soon as it was possible, they were going to furlough employes one day each week. that is a 20% pay cut for civilian employees at the defense department. each agency will have autonomy in how they implement these cuts. each agency is going to release their plan on an individual basis. host: what about benefits? guest: this will affect -- will not impact retirement plans or insurance. for employers -- employees that received a match, if you're not putting as much pate, you'll not be contributing as much to your
them under the law of war, we're going to exploit intelligence but we're going to do it within the laws that we've signed up to like the geneva convention, the convention against torture. so to my friends on this side of the aisle -- mr. durbin: would the senator yield for a question? mr. graham: absolutely. mr. durbin: to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle it was 12 hours ago i was standing here, a lonely voice among others who were discussing this issue bringing up the points that you raise. the first is the drone is a weapon. there are many weapons that can deliver lethal force. we should view this as an issue of lethal force, not an issue of drones per se, although it may raise some particular questions and application. it is largely a question of lethal force. the second question has been raised by the senator from -- both senators. what if the fourth airplane had not been brought down by the passengers? what if that plane were headed for this capitol building and all other planes had been landed across america under orders of our government and we knew this plane was the
sued for that. congress in 2005 passed a specific law to give gun companies immunity for lawsuits for how they're products get used. that is not on the agenda to get discussed? however he talks about protecting your family at the end of the world the fight against gun reform is about the gun makers fund the mra. it is all about protecting the gun makers from becoming the foe focus. this week, republicans in the senate filibustered in washington, d.c. that court sort of a minor leagues for the supreme court. as federal judgeships go, a seat is very important. the nominee is named caitlin haligan. qualified for the job. this is why they blocked the nomination. quoting senate republicans, in new york versus sterman ruger a new york state court case, ms. halligan argued that uses of -- vigorously advanced attempting to hold gun manufacturers liable. gun manufacturers will not be held liable for the products they sell. will not argue that publicly. that would look bad. they have the nra to do it for them and they stay in the shadows. at bottom this is them protecting themselves. from w
: what is your background? >> at american university, i teach a combination of business law and actually don't really teach in the way international law courses and public international law. i am a visiting fellow at the hoover institution in california, nonresident senior fellow at the brookings institution in washington d.c. and in those areas, most international security, this book, i am proud to say was published by the institution press, and i have a background that is schizophrenic, i have a background in finance and business and tax law and that sort of stuff. earlier in my career i was a long time non-profit lawyer and that sort of stuff, and general counsel to the george soros foundation and the open society. i have drifted to the right i have to say some what. before that i was the director of the human rights watch arms division in new york. i have another career in on profits of but also sort of the long background in transactional business practices a lot of which involve development and finance and international development issues and one of the things i enjoy it was the ch
a senior al qaeda leader and osama bin laden son-in-law to the u.s. to be tried in civil court. a decision that is drawn heavy criticism from republicans. >> article iii courts have shown that they're in many ways a more efficient way for us to deliver justice to those who seek to harm the united states of america. and that is the consensus view of the president's national security team and of agencies all across the federal government. >> he pleaded not guilty to a charge of plotting to kill americans this morning before a new york city federal judge. according to law enforcement officials, he is the most senior al qaeda figure to face criminal trial in new york since the 9/11 attacks. now, key republican senators have lashed out at the administration arguing that he and other terror suspects should be sent to guantanamo bay to be tried as enemy combatants. pete williams is following it. as i understand, the government saying they've received or got an incredible amount of information from him. >> yes. i think i should first say what the white house spokesman meant saying article iii cour
. that was signed into law last december. unless you fund it, they are still hamstrung. if we do a cr for the rest of the year or an omnibus or some kind of funding mechanism that does not give them the appropriations and the authority to move funds from one area to another, it severely impacts them. one of the greatest concerns we have is readiness. i know that we have troops that are being trained to go to the war theater and they are not receiving the same training they did just a year ago because those funds have been cut. if we do not pass that appropriations bill they will be cut further. i was told by the secretary of the army that he is going to have to cut 40% out of his operating maintenance account. this cannot be allowed to happen. >> is it a problem for your efforts that there seems to be a mixed message within your own party, that many people are saying let the cuts go ahead. many of them are saying defense cuts -- we need them. i heard a lot of people saying things that are not in line with what you're saying. >> in congress, there are 437 people. we cannot be experts on everything
in illegally trafficked guns. here is the incredible point. there is no federal law now that prohibits illegal trafficking. and this measure would impose for the first time terms of 20 to 30 years in prison and i know that the efficacy of that kind because helped when i was the attorney general and to provide these kinds of law enforcement tools is absolutely critical. which is why we have a bipartisan group of senators cosponsoring them. senator collins and senator kirk. both republicans of maine and illinois respectively. senator leahy is leading us. senator kirsten and myself from the northeast also involved as the leading cosponsors. so i think we are on the cusp of a major breakthrough if we can move this bill out of committee and through the united states senate. >> it is amazing it has not been a federal crime before. and i know first hand you've been passionate about this. not only are you a senator from the state where newtown happened, but where you've been on this concern a long time since a prosecutor. and as a senator. in fact, i've been in black churches with you in your state wh
. today you issued a statement about former dea chiefs who are calling on president to nullify state laws. you said it's arrogant that these former dea chiefs encourage the president to full my state marijuana laws. the fact that these former dea chiefs are so focused on marijuana possession is why we have lost the war on drugs. congressman, if we lost the war on drugs what should federal policy be going forward? >> where states have legalized we ought to see how it works. how does possession, legalization work and what happens. then the other states can learn from it. you shouldn't nullify the people's voice. the people are the ultimate powers. when you have a referendum, i think it's wrong for these former dea heads to not realize that they were fighting a losing war. it's against crack heroin and cocaine, not marijuana. we spent too much time and money on marijuana, ruined too many lives who can't get jobs, couldn't get scholarships, federal housing and have a big red "m" on their chest for smokerring marijuana. that's not what america is about. those people were out of touch when they
